Second concert I went to was Point Blank>Iron Maiden>.38 Special. I think Iron Maiden had just released Number of the Beast cause I came with a shirt that said that. MTV was playing the Run to the Hills video (with the Indians on the bicycle built for 8) fairly regularly.

So Maiden comes out and tears the place apart. Then Eddy (remember that big-ass "robot" thing) comes out. These three stoned rednecks in front of me about shit. "Goddamn. What da heeelllll is that?" Guess they was there for .38 Special.

I can't imagine the 38 Special crowds reaction to Iron Maiden. Damn that's a funny visual. Why, that'd be like the Grateful Dead opening for Engelbert Humperdinck.

***2 points to me for working in a Humperdinck reference, the first of it's kind on the Forum.

Yeah, you got me there. Femmes & Dead, that's just crazy speak.

That would be like Anthrax opening for mid 80's Rush or the Violent Femmes opening for the Dead or something.
